- Now, take a big mixing bowl and combine both the flours, baking soda, and salt.
- Add the yogurt mixture into this mixture and the remaining water. Massage to make a semi-soft dough.
- Add a little amount of water, if needed; make sure the dough is neither too sticky nor very hard.

- Now, take a piece of dough the size of a tennis ball and roll it out on a lightly floured countertop.
- Sprinkle some nigella seeds and some garlic and roll again so it gets stuck to the dough and doesn’t run away from it on the pan!
- Now, it is time to put your perfect creation on the hot griddle and let it cook for 30 to 40 seconds.
- As soon as you see some bubbles on top of the naan, turn it over and cook another side, for about 2 to 3 minutes.
